Tasting Notes

    • Comment

      Exit Madeira and Burgundy, here’s a Sauternes finish. It’s not impossible that new owners LVMH provide the distillery with their own empty Sauternes casks (yes, it’s Sauternes with an s at the end. Sauterne is a pale copy made in America, or a frequent misspelling done by some of our Scottish friends. Well, I do it myself sometimes, but not on labels, eh!)

    • Colour

      Gold (what else?) Nose: but this smells exactly like Sauternes at first nosing! Amazing... I mean, the spirit is almost absent here, it’s the wine that does all the talking, and as Sauternes isn’t ‘a winey wine’ (come on, Serge!), the result is rather pleasant. A lot of fructose, ripe apricots, icing sugar, hints of kiwis, tangerines... How funny. Gets a little more ‘whisky’ after a while, that is, with hints of oak, a faint maltiness and... And? Hugely demonstrative in any case.

    • Mouth

      Ho-ho, this works better I think. More multidimensional than the sherry (and certainly than the Port), with a better oakiness, spices and grass at the attack, and then a huge sweetness that’s better controlled I think. Pepper, baklavas, apricot jam and green tea. Works very well, and there’s even bits of the original distillate that shine through (imagine something delicately smoky and vanilled whispering in the background).

    • Finish

      Long and thick, on the same big flavours, with also hints of resin. Again, a very well crafted malt from the New World of Whisky. Certainly not a grand cru (how would we know anyway with this heavy treatment?) but the end result is truly palatable methinks, albeit a bit panzerish (I think you made your point here, Serge). 86 points (just two points below the rather excellent old 21yo Sauternes finish).

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Aroma

      Tempted by the aromas wafting through the door of a French patisserie, you step inside to discover a tangy tarte au citron with its crisp pastry case and smooth lemony cream topping. Next to it is with its fluffy sponginess and milky vanilla aroma is a Genoise cake decorate with crystallised lime and orange peel. You can smell plump juicy sultanas, dates, warming ginger, coconut and nutmeg. In the background, gingerbread is baking in a wood-burning oven.

      Slip some water into the whisky to release the frothiness of lemon meringue pie and the rich aroma of baking fruitcake and warm gingerbread drizzled with crème anglaise

    • Taste

      The smooth, melting creaminess of lemon tart leaves the mouth full of citrus tang that gives way to crème caramel and zesty lime. This is replaced by warming ginger coupled with the mellow nutty flavours of nutmeg and toasted almonds that add warmth and chewiness that melts into oozing lemon meringue and melting honeycomb.

    • Finish

      Languid and sweet with lemon zest, vanilla cream and delicate hints of ginger and nutmeg.

    Andrew,

    This is the scotch bourbon drinkers drink.

  • Alaskan,

    Very smooth. Gentle on the palate. The citrus tickles your nose a bit and finishes with a light vanilla sensation. Not overpowering by any means. Full of flavor and aroma. Great nightcap.

  • Chris,

    Received this as a Christmas present from my wife & it's become my favourite whisky by far. Several friends who have tasted it have also been blown away by its smooth complex taste and downright drinkability. Perfect if, like me, you're not a fan of the smoky taste of some single malts.

  • Vuz Kapur,

    This Whisky is for real connoisseurs. It's one of the most complex ive tasted in a while. You smell something new everytime. Very subtle flavours. It won't blow Your head off, but has so much complexity for this price. I've had 15 bottles open In recent months, this is undoubtedly the best.
